Are mental health and Fibromyalgia considered as a disability for PIP?
I'm not sure if I am in the correct place or not, hopefully I am. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 12 years ago and am struggling lately to work full time. I have also been on antidepressants for most of my adult life. I'm now 58 and although I'm an optimistic and proud person I have had to start the process of making a claim for PIP. I've accepted that my mental health and Fibromyalgia are conditions that affect my lifestyle. Would they be considered as a disability though?
